MotoGP gets vaccinated

The Kingdom of Qatar has offered the entire MotoGP paddock to be vaccinated against Corona. The majority of the teams have already been vaccinated.


The first vaccinations took place on Friday, using the vaccine from BioNTech-Pizer. According to media reports, Marc Marquez will also fly to Qatar to be vaccinated. Because of his upper arm fracture in Jerez last year, he can currently not participate in the tests. After the vaccination he will fly back home to continue his training program.

The doctors already gave him the green light to train on motorcycles and on the very first day he did a few laps on a not so powerful bike.


Dorna boss Carmelo Ezpeleta on the vaccination: “The Qatar government offers us the vaccination, but everyone decides individually whether to accept this offer or not. The majority have accepted it… Our riders are very popular, especially among the younger generation. They take care of their health and make decisions to be as strong as possible and to avoid infections… I think we are an example for society. Thanks to Qatar, we have a chance to show the world how important it is for our heroes to be vaccinated.”


Still skeptical is Takaaki Nakagami, who has not been vaccinated (yet): “I’m not 100 percent convinced and can’t trust it yet. Some people say no, some say yes. But most people have been vaccinated… I need more information about it. For me, it’s not an easy decision.”
